Lakeshore Residence

In response to the sloping north facing site, the house is elongated east to west to allow south light to penetrate the rooms on the north side. Its three main volumes, each oriented to optimize views is in response to the sloping site, house a library, formal living and dining and large family room. Each has its own terrace to provide complementary outdoor space. Exterior terraces are made of antique granite “planks” salvaged from flooded villages behind China’s Three Gorges Dam, also the source of the driveway cobbles. An earth sheltered guest house, clad in stone, doubles as a pool cabana in summer months. The three-car garage is designed to support half-court basketball with a sport court floor and glass backboard.
